Construction Damage Consulting and Information
Construction damage, usually due to vibration or other forms of ground excitation caused by the improper use of heavy equipment, occurs much more often than those in that industry would like to admit. The typical homeowner lacks the knowledge and documentation to pursue a legitimate claim against construction firms and their insurance companies. Dr. Zeigler has spent nearly 8 years investigating the scientific literature, performing original research, evaluating construction damage, and consulting in both legal and non-legal settings. By following this link, you can find out some of what he learned about construction-caused damage and claims. You can learn much more about this area by visiting his dedicated web site,, where you can also download his free Construction Vibration Damage Guide for Homeowners.

His vibration damage Facebook page,, allows those with vibration damage concerns and interests both to learn more and discuss the issues that concern them regarding damage issues.
